Edward Buie II is a PhD candidate working with Evan Scannapieco on investigating the role of turbulence in galactic halo simulations using the MAIHEM (Models of Agitated and Illuminated Hindering and Emitting Media) code which tracks ionizations, recombinations, and ion-by-ion radiative cooling for many astrophysically relevant elements. He is also interested in normalizing and de-stigmatizing mental health discussions in science and work to improve the quality of life for scientists while in academia.
